This competition was to analyse and design the building and surrounding areas of the
central railway station for the city of Ulm. Not only did the brief call for a proposal
for a new railway station with entrance hall, platform areas, and subsidiary station functions,
but also for the urban design of the surrounding urban/ suburban spaces (including buildings
of both civic and private enterprise functions) and servicing for connections to other means
A grand new roof structure spanning the main station buildings
and all platforms was created to unify the station with its additional facilities and to
give a strong identity to the city of Ulm by creating a new gateway into town.
